    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro

    FU + Brighter screen + 1x better zoom (4-5x optical) + may be better modem (tbd since they are still using a bunch of samsung and their in-house stuff mashed together)= $350-400 (after the best trade in deals, currently from BB)? Hard call to make.

    Pixel 7 / Pixel 7 Pro

    Actually got a S22 Ultra 256GB from Google Fi on Monday that should be about 400 all in out of pocket with 2 months free untld plus service. Was too good to pass up, though my P6P has been quite well behaved esp since A13, almost no reason to go for P7P from a P6P though, it's almost entirely...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    About two weeks ago, tried 3 refurbs in Aug that were worse than original so finally called and bitched politely to a decent support person.YMMV.

    Intel ARC A750 & A770 Reviews

    I'm actually pleasantly surprised, most of the issues are down to driver maturity and the hardware when tuned can reach 3060ti plus performance levels, who expected them to emphatically trounce Nv/AMD cards day 1? Not me...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Finally got Dell to ship me a new replacement, sleep/shutdown bug is definitely gone in MB102 firmware, July build, packaging seems to be better in there are barely any bubble wrap marks on the screen now and it seems they made the AR coating glossier so it absorbs less light.

    Microcenter - Free 32GB DDR5 kit with purchase of a Ryzen 4 CPU.

    The apparent super long post times (shorter after the first training but still much longer than AM4) is also giving me pause, don't want a system that takes forever to boot, the X99 was a case in point.

    Microcenter - Free 32GB DDR5 kit with purchase of a Ryzen 4 CPU.

    Mr. JP wants to depress the economy and he is succeeding, this is an optional purchase for most Zen 3 users, I may have impulse bought but seeing the red in my portfolio daily doesn't make me wanna spend money on frivolous extras, just my $0.02.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    So the PS5 1440p limitation is an asinine Sony thing and not an issue with the 23dw, unless Sony enables 1440p VRR, the 23dwf won't do it either fwiw.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I am no fan of user bendable screens, but LG can certainly cut 39" 3840x1600 panels from the 42 c2 panel, bend them once at the factory and ship them off 😉

    Is it worth going 4k with a computer monitor yet?

    True 4k ultra wide is 5k2k fwiw, not 3840x1600 and there are multiple 40" IPS 5k2k monitors out there based on LG panels, just need an OLED version. 5k2k is the best of all worlds since you can run 4k natively which 3840x1600 screens do not allow.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I am pretty sure LG can make curved 39-inch 3840x1600 OLED panels from the 42C2 base panel, probably sell for the same price and increase yield by 20%, only a matter of time.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    7-800 if Mr. JP keeps at it...on a different note, the difference between text rendering between c2 and the aw is in hdr mode, which is preferable compared to switching between SDR/HDR since windows does a remarkable job of mapping the gamut correctly now, text in SDR mode on the C2 is fine...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Unlike TVs curve For a moment I thought the comparison point was 23dw 😀 , which would make some sense but yea the c2, size aside is miles better than any IPS...it IS, however, noticeably worse in HDR than QD-OLED to the trained eye.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    38-40 uw is about perfect, had one for 3 years before the PQ on the 23DW made me accept the resolution downgrade.5k2k is ideal but 3840x1600 like on my former u3818/xr382 is very nice too.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I agree with most points you made, that's why I returned mine because my point of reference was the 23DW which is QD-OLED. At some point size becomes too much for DT use, I think I could have gotten used to the size over time but with the other stuff, just didn't feel worth the hassle of of...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Just came back to post that after trying the 42C2 side by side on the same setup, the AW is superior for majority of the DT use cases, returned my c2 and pulled the aw back from FS section, detailed observations on the 42 oled thread.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Back on the AW, waste of a few hours setting things up back and forth but atleast I am now done with this experiment: the AW is the better monitor for DT use, period. The 42C2 will work for a lot of folks but for me, 38" UW is about the max I am comfortable with so guess this will be it for me...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Assuming disabling ABL via service menu does nothing to limit brightness transitions in HDR mode when panning different browser windows for example? That is putting me off this one, good thing the AW is on standby if I change my mind lol. The AW absolutely does not have this issue and you can...

    tf I just do, thing is massive and obviously everything looks convex today coming from a curved screen 🤦‍♂️ Atleast Costco gave me a $150 'customer satisfaction' discount though they don't officially PM other stores so not tempted to get another from BB.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Running native HDR all the time on the 42C2 just looks a bit weird, can't exactly nail what it is...may be black levels need calibration as the dark cross in windows hdr tool is still visible at lowest brightness vs disappearing on the AW, plus I think the 42 may be too big vertically...

    These will fit upto m6x30mm without spacers/washers, smaller lengths are probably fine too as long as there is sufficient 'hold'.

    Got it yesterday, mounting on desktop stand with 100mm to 300mm VESA adapter was more of a time suck than I thought, never paid attention to the dozens of different Mx screw sizes before.

    What is the QNIX 2710 of 2022?

    The AW3423DW is technically 1440p, semi-glossy and the best HDR colors of ANY display, period, since it's OLED it also works very well as a 27" 1440p screen if needed (thanks PS5 for not supporting UW...), there is no glow or other LCD shenanigans reminding you of the unused screen real-estate...

    With price of the 42 c2 dropping to 1150 got one to compare against my 34aw, went with costco though the open box excellent at BB for 999 were very tempting, the 90 day hassle free returns and extra warranty made me pony up the extra.

    Canceled my preoder, sounds like a headache, gonna keep the AW and may be try the 42C2 as a costco rental if I feel the itch for something bigger...I like that someone here is ordering and testing displays like I used to, saves me the hassle 👍

    Atleast I gave them $$$$$ in their final year, RIP EVGA, from my first stateside card, the 6800GT -> to my latest 3090 and a ton in between, it was good to have known ya, just hope you maintain a feasible service path for the 4 years left on my warranty.

    Wow, guess if my 3090 RTX ever goes belly up, no chances of a free 4080/5070 upgrade...hope they honor existing warranties though not sure how they are going to honor the long term extended warranties of 10 years in this situation.
